Online Classes are Here! 線 上 課 程 來 囉 ！！
Can’t wait to dance with you at home!
For weeks it seems I’ve been endlessly working on a new project, and now I’m so happy to finally share that I have an online class option for you! I’d spent quite a bit of time experimenting with live streaming and ZOOM , but internet connections, time zones and my already super full schedule have made it difficult to be able to set up a reliable and consistent livestream option.
I was therefore very excited when Zumba just released its own platform ZIN Studio which currently allows Zumba instructors to post a prerecorded class video, available for a 5 hour period of time.
Truthfully, my class schedule has INCREASED, at least temporarily, as more private clients are unable to travel and people are focusing on their health. However, I can’t help but notice the students who are not able to join group classes currently, and I can’t ignore there are people all over the world who are struggling physically, emotionally, and financially during this time . This has been my motivation in bringing you an online class available at many times and on a donation basis, so that truly everyone who needs to dance and wants to dance with me is able to do so.
I will do my best to edit in and add new songs to the class video each week so that just as in a live class you can practice the same routines while also getting some variety in!
Please check out the links I’ve included below for more information on logging into my class . Try the class out, do it as many times as you want, and if you enjoyed the experience, consider making a donation if you are in the position to do so, or share it with someone you know who might need some movement in their life!
❤️During these times, I’m aware of the added stress and uncertainty many people are facing. I believe in the benefits dance fitness has not only on our health, but also on our mental and emotional wellbeing.
No matter where you are in the world, I want to stay connected with you and keep dancing together!

馬不停蹄地著手這個新計劃已經好幾周的時間了。今天，終於能夠大喊：「線上課程開課了！」能為你們多提供一種選擇，真的讓我十分雀躍！花了許多時間嘗試直播與 Zoom ，但是網路的品質、時差、以及我原本就滿檔的行程等原因，使得要建立一個可靠、常態的直播課程非常的困難。
當 Zumba 開始這個他們自己的平台 - ZIN Studio，目前這個平台可以讓 Zumba 老師播放錄製課程，每堂課有 5 個小時的觀看時間。
💃🏻線上課程（https://www.zumba.com/en-US/profile/kathleen-batchelor/797245 ）會在以下的時段開課 : 週一，三，六 9:00 & 17:00（台灣時間）。
⏰這堂一小時的預錄的課，有 5 個小時的區間（9am-2pm & 5pm-10pm）可以觀看。
